  1. Loved this post! Iโ€™ve been trying to go on daily walks and have wanted to go in the mornings but havenโ€™t done it yet. I took a screen shot of your tips to help with my morning routine!

    1. Hi Alexandra! Thanks so much ๐Ÿ™‚ One thing that helps me get out in the morning (other than my dog staring at me!) is walking before I have my tea. Even if I’m super sleepy I walk. Then once I’m home that cup of tea tastes all the better!

  2. I have always been a “morning person”. To me it is the best time of the day. I already implement many of your ideas. Thanks for sharing.

    1. Hey Jolayne! I agree with you. It’s my favourite time of day too. Glad you have a wonderful morning routine. What do you enjoy doing in the mornings?

  3. These are great tips! Something I do in the morning, and throughout the day, is drink a lot of spring water. We get it from this place called Cedar Springs and we’re totally obsessed. It makes me feel productive, knowing I’m staying hydrated, and that carries over to other things.

  4. Such lovely ideas – I never thought about the scent one, though I suppose I kind of do this with my morning coffee routine. You have inspired me to bust out my pour-over coffee maker and enjoy this process. Also, I too often find myself diving right into work rather than walking my puppies, first. I think I will switch it up. ๐Ÿ™‚ Thank you!

    1. Hi Jamie! So happy to have inspired you ๐Ÿ™‚ Starting your day right makes such a difference. Enjoy your mornings ๐Ÿ™‚ xo

  5. I used to love my mornings and going for beach walks to activate my scent and meditate in the morning. I was only saying earlier today that I’m going to change back to going to bed early so I enjoy mornings again. Thank you for the reminder of how beautiful and productive mornings are.

    1. Beach walks in the morning sound unbelievable! Lucky you that you can do this! I hope you do start them again. Take care Angie!

  6. My mornings are always my weak spot, probably because I have been a night owl for as long as I can remember. However, I am trying to make my mornings better and applying these tips to my day is sure to help.

  7. What lovely ideas to start the day! I hadn’t considered thinking about scent first thing in the morning before but it really makes sense! My sense of smell is very acute and scents can really trigger different moods for me. Great idea!

  8. I do enjoy a cup of coffee in the morning and I make it a point to not tune into any social media as soon as I wake up. I found a great book to start my day off on a positive and spiritual note: Miracles Now by Gabby Bernstein. Can’t wait to start adding that to my morning routine.

    I could definitely do with a better routine – I have lost the plot a little bit in this respect lately!
    I find I reach for my phone first thing, hit the coffee straight away (I used to be such a healthy breakfast eater) and then go straight into work… I need to have a little self-care first thing that is for sure!

    I love these ideas. Plus theyre so easy

  11. I learnt a while back that it is better to have 10 minutes less sleep and have a relaxed morning than to fly around the house going crazy. I also prepare the night before, which makes life a whole lot easier!

  12. I love mornings. This is a wonderful time of the day to set powerful intentions. I thoroughly enjoyed this post for the awesome tips and much needed reminders.

  13. These are great tips! The first thing i do every morning is scroll through my social medias. I should really try no media for the first half hour!

  14. I love your suggestions for a self care morning! Especially the no media part and going for a walk. I know I always feel good after a bit of exercise, what a great way to start the day!

  15. I would love to have the motivation to go for a walk in the morning! Activating a happy scent is also a great idea. When I’m stressed, I put lavender oil on the tip of my nose but I haven’t thought to try it as a morning routine. Thanks for the ideas!

  16. I like the idea to activate your scent. Scent is such a powerful activation tool. Smells have the ability to bring is back to a different time. Thinking about the smells that make us happy probably helps our positive mood. I’m going to try this! Thanks for the tip.

  17. Loved reading this! It gave me a bunch of good ideas – I’ve been meaning to change around my morning routine for a while now. Beautifully written! Thanks for the article!

    1. Thank you so much Sonja ๐Ÿ™‚

  18. I do a couple of these things already and they definitely help me to start my day well, especially the no media rule. I will add one or two more in and see how I go, thanks.

    I love the idea of going for a walk in the morning. Once itโ€™s not freezing in the AM, Iโ€™m definitely going to start doing that!

  20. I can’t tell you how many times I leave work frazzled in the mornings and it ruins my whole day. These are great tips I’ll definitely start implementing!

    1. Hi Beth! I hear you. If you start your day off on the wrong foot you can definitely feel it all day long. xo
